Chocolate Covered Cherry Green Smoothie – Recipe

Chocolate Covered Cherry Green Smoothie - Recipe

We’re a couple weeks into our 30 day green smoothie challenge, and it’s been going really well. I’ve enjoyed having a refreshing breakfast that’s also nutrient packed and filling (we add nuts to our smoothie bowls to help them last longer). I’ve been on the smoothie bowl kick for a couple weeks now, and I just really needed to change it up a bit. So, I decided to drink my smoothie. How novel. ;)

I saw these frozen cherries at the grocery store and immediately decided that I needed to make a chocolate cherry smoothie. Since I wanted to drink my smoothie this day, I thought this would be the perfect one to try – it would be reminiscent of a milkshake! I’m happy to say that this was a hit. It had just the right amount of chocolate to complement the sweet yet slightly tart cherries. This is what I did:

Chocolate Covered Cherry Green Smoothie

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Serving Size: 2


  • 2 cups greens*
  • 2 cups frozen cherries
  • 2 heaping tbs cocoa powder
  • 1 banana**
  • 1-2 tbs almond butter (optional)
  • 2 cups liquid of choice


  1. Combine ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.


– Almond butter is optional give. It gives the smoothie a creamier texture.

– For liquid, use water to keep it light, or try it with almond, coconut or regular milk to a richer, more milkshake-like smoothie. If you decide to use “milk” you may need to add a bit more liquid.

– To make this smoothie bowl just reduce the liquid to 1 cup.

* I’ve used spinach, kale and a “super greens” mix. They’ve all worked great!

** In the photo my banana was already pre-frozen and blended. It was leftover from an “ice cream” treat the night before.
